im using a Lenovo Laptop running Win 8
 
today i tried logging into  my other account from this laptop, and it displayed a screen that it is installing new files... the laptop lost power during the process... 
 
now the laptop starts, loads the lenovo logo and then shows the blue Restart screen and restarts..
as it restarts it shows the Lenovo logo and Preparing Automatic repairs below, and then blacks out, but still runs...
 
i keep trying to restart and hard restart, yet the same happens.... 
i even tried pressing Shift/F8/F11/F10/F12 but nothing happens

Win 8 or Win 8.1?

Do you have another laptop or PC with the same OS installed?

Try this please. You will need a USB drive.

Download http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/unetbootin-xpud-windows-latest.exe & http://noahdfear.net/downloads/bootable/xPUD/xpud-0.9.2.iso to the desktop of your working computer (it doesn't need to be any specific version of Windows)
  • Insert your USB drive
  • Press Start > My Computer > right click your USB drive > choose Format > Quick format
  • Double click the unetbootin-xpud-windows-387.exe that you just downloaded
  • Press Run then OK
  • Select the DiskImage option then click the browse button located on the right side of the textbox field.
  • Browse to and select the xpud-0.9.2.iso file you downloaded
  • Verify the correct drive letter is selected for your USB device then click OK
  • It will install a little bootable OS on your USB device
  • Once the files have been written to the device you will be prompted to reboot ~ do not reboot and instead just Exit the UNetbootin interface
  • After it has completed do not choose to reboot the clean computer simply close the installer
  • Next download http://noahdfear.net/downloads/driver.sh to your USB
  • Download http://noahdfear.net/downloads/rst.sh to the USB drive
  • Remove the USB and insert it in the sick computer
  • Boot the Sick computer
  • Press F12 and choose to boot from the USB
  • Follow the prompts
  • A Welcome to xPUD screen will appear
  • Press File
  • Expand mnt
  • sda1,2...usually corresponds to your HDD
  • sdb1 is likely your USB
  • Click on the folder that represents your USB drive (sdb1 ?)
  • Confirm that you see rst.sh that you downloaded there
  • Press Tool at the top
  • Choose Open Terminal
  • Type bash rst.sh
  • Press Enter
  • After it has finished a report will be located at sdb1 named enum.log
  • Plug that USB back into the clean computer and open it
Please note: If you have an ethernet connection you can access the internet by way of xPUD (Firefox). You can perform all these steps on your sick computer. When you download the download will reside in the Download folder. It can be found under the File tab also. You can similarly access our thread by way of this OS too so you can send the logs that way.

Please also note - all text entries are case sensitive

Copy and paste the enum.log for my review

The first one is only a couple of megabytes. The second one should be significantly larger (64MB), but only took me about a minute to download. The two files that need to be saved to the USB drive are very small, and should only take a few seconds each.

Are you having issues downloading the xPUD ISO? Here's some alternate mirrors you can use if so:

http://xpud.googlecode.com/files/xpud-0.9.2.iso
http://soldat.gr/xpud/xpud-0.9.2.iso
http://mesrss.free.fr/xpud/xpud-0.9.2.iso
ftp://ftp.dorm.ccu.edu.tw/pub/Linux/xPUD/xpud-0.9.2.iso

If your issue is something else, Please explain it in more detail (I'm unsure if you're having issues downloading UNetBootin or xPUD or having install issues, or what...)

careful doing that. Unofficial mirrors can have malware and / or PUPs bundled with legit files.

Interesting... well keep that xPUD file somewhere safe. Never hurts to have a recovery environment.
